FOREWORD 



"Youth asks certainty of life — as if she had it to give." 

By this bit of wisdom we are warned that life 
is capricious, so too, the favor of the public. 
Therefore, with trepidation but also with 
hope we cast out these leaves from "The 
Elms" wishing that to all of '38 they help 
keep green memories of gala days (and 
nights) at O. L. E.

DEDICATION 



His Excellency 
The Most Reverend 

Thomas Mary O'Leary, D. D. 

Bishop of Springfield and 
President of Our College 

Judging from your life, "To give to others," 
is your motto, Your Excellency. We of the 
Class of '38 have experienced your largesse. 
Your wisdom has provided for us an institu- 
tion where God is a reality. Your sacrifice 
has shown us the path of true service in self- 
forgetfulness. Your merry countenance has 
proven that the good life is the happy one. 
For these things and for the many unmention- 
ed the Class of '38 wishes to dedicate this 
volume to you as a slight, tangible indication 
of its gratitude and reverence for its beloved 
president.

His Excellency 
The Most Reverend Thomas Mary O'Leary, D.D. 



TO THE FACULTY 



The Words of the Syrian Philosopher Best Express 
What We Think of You 

"Then said a teacher, Speak to us of teaching. 
And he said: 

No man can reveal to you aught but that which already lies half asleep in the 
dawning of your knowledge. 

The teacher who walks in the shadow of the temple, among his followers, gives 
not of his wisdom but rather of his faith and his lovingness. 

If he is indeed wise he does not bid you enter the house of his wisdom, but 
rather leads you to the threshold of your own mind. 

The astronomer may speak to you of his understanding of space, but he cannot 
give you his understanding. 

The musician may sing to you of the rhythm which is in all space, but he 
cannot give you the ear which arrests the rhythm or the voice that echoes it. 

And he who is versed in the science of numbers can tell of the regions of 
weight and measure, but he cannot conduct you thither. 

For the vision of one man lends not its wings to another man. 

And even as each one of you stands alone in God's knowledge, so must each 
one of you stand alone in his knowledge of God and in his understanding of 
the earth." 

By this criterion we have judged you — 
And you were not found wanting.

REV. JEREMIAH P. SHEEHAN, D.CL 

CHAPLAIN— PROFESSOR OF RELIGION 



DOCTOR SHEEHAN 



Introducing in our last year a new professor of religion created a tension of suspense 
among the Seniors. The two inevitable questions buzzed in our minds, "Who and 
what is he like?" These persisted until late in October when Doctor Sheehan 
appeared on the campus ready to change his parish duties for those of professor and 
chaplain. We found to our deep gratification that Doctor Sheehan was prepared to 
extend to us the ready hand of friend and guide. Although his classroom may have 
resounded with questions as to the etymology of words, this word, friend, needed no 
such research. Its source was instinctively felt one toward another. 

The past year has pictured Doctor Sheehan in many roles. His example has not 
failed to imprint in our hearts true reverence and appreciation for a solitary moment 
with the Blessed Sacrament. As professor, he has endeavored to teach us to coordinate 
our ideas on the present and to season our judgments with experiences of the past. 

Outside of academic duties, he has listened with a sympathetic understanding to our 
difficulties. His pleasant, jovial humor always dispersed our momentary quandaries, 
and left us soothed and comforted. In this favorite role we shall always visualize him. 

A year may be a short period upon which to base a life-long friendship. However, 
we feel it is a capable foundation since it is built on mutual interest of the future 
of O. L. E.

FATHER LANE 



Father Lane in a column? Impossible! His is the personality which challenges 
words to capture the heights of an enthusiastic soul. In the manner of "The New 
Yorker" we might essay a profile sketch of this passionate preacher, scholar, critic and 
litterateur but in this brief space we choose to pen him as the professor and man. 

Time will never dim for us the diabolical gleam of his eyes when he thinks of a 
modern problem to pose in an exam nor the sympathetic glance cast at his fellow 
victims of wet Chicopee weather. Who can ever forget his mental tonics of outlined 
encyclicals, case questions and discussion problems? 

His inspirational teaching opens to us new beauties in the Great Sacrifice, his vivid 
descriptions recreate the historic institution of the Sacraments; his pithy sayings sear 
into our memories adequate rules for Catholic conduct. For the intelligent, com- 
prehensive, Christian treatment of the subject of marriage we are particularly and 
deeply indebted. 

Father Lane, the man, will hold ever a sovereign place in our gallery of favorite 
people. By his genial humor, broad tolerance of human weakness, and generous 
dedication of his time and energy to the causes so close to the heart of youth, he has 
endeared himself to us. By his unconquerable hatred of hypocrisy and unsatiable thirst 
for justice and charity in human relations he has given an example and norm for 
noble living. In the outlines of his character we discern the foundation for the 
definition of man, "A creature made to the image and likeness of God."

THE CLASS OF '38 POEM 

Original Verse Composed by 

FRANCES JULIE MANGIN 

When passing years have snatched away the precious youth we bear, 

And fleeting time has cast its silver glow upon our hair, 
Still in the temple of our heart, reserved for mem'ries dear, 

Our Alma Mater's shrine will long outlive each passing year. 
There in the quiet stillness far beyond all care and strife, 

At times we shall retreat to tell our rosary of life, 
And as the precious gems slip slowly, finding their release, 

Four golden beads, our College years, will bring us joy and peace. 

We know not what the paths shall hold that stretch their way ahead; 

The saintly models of our College days dispel our dread; 
Made strong by Christian principles and fortified for woe 

We'll find our Lady waiting on the path we choose to go. 
And tho' a tinge of sadness cloud the parting of the ways 

We shall find joy in living as we've lived our College days, 
Trusting in God, we'll know success in any path or glen, 

And, at the Place where roadways meet, we all shall meet again.

CLASS HISTORY 



To-day, young ladies, we will try 

For our class in history to espy 

The Elms class of '3 8; 

And to its functions dedicate 

Our efforts in our work to-day. 

Much have they labored, much have done, 

In the midst of their efforts lurks much fun. 

So listen and learn and concentrate 

On the exceptional class of '38, 

That yours, too, may rate "Grade A". 

History's composed of cause and effect. 

This class was a wonder, that we detect. 

What brought this greatness to heights sublime 

That we'll discover within our rhyme. 

Open your text-books, we'll begin 

With that page in history that ushers in 

This famous class. (That day in September 

'Tis well to remember) 

For like that in April of '75 

This date, too, will fore'er survive, 

When at the Elms portals in '34 

A group of freshmen, thirty or more 

Matriculated. 

Gathered at Mass in earnest prayer, 

Asked of the Holy Ghost, blessings rare, 

That that which helps life's grim solution 

Might be at this collegiate institution 

Quite stimulated. 

Thus began their initial year, 

And then to lend them warmest cheer 

In about a week there came to pass 

The Freshman reception by the Senior class; 

Sweet young freshies with big green bows, 

Refreshments served in O'Leary Hall, 

And stunts and games in the gym for all. 

Kay Lockhart made a spokesman effective, 

As she offered for them a greeting collective — 

So the history goes. 

Turning the pages, the next event, 

The election of a president. 

PRUNELLA PRIM, now please relate 
All the details of that starry date. 

For the captain of our freshmen cruise 
Mary Ellen Quilty, the class did choose. 
Franny O'Brien was deemed proficient 
To be our captain's first assistant; 
For secretary 

Betty Maroney, sweet and sunny, 

With Rita Ahearn to handle the money. 



For such officers our vote was cast 
And with a gallant crew before the mast 
We could not tarry. 

And from your text-book, BARBARA BEAN, 
Let us see what data you can glean. 

To help us along our spiritual way 
Fr. Dolan came for a three-day stay. 
With words of warning, strict and stern, 
He gave our thoughts a serious turn, 
In our first retreat. 

Then for our parents, a welcome grand 

With song and dance by our merry band; 

Our president sang and many another — 

Fran Mangin rendered "AN Old-Fashioned Mother" 

So lovely and sweet. 

PROFESSOR: 

So here we are at a week in October 

With Shylock's pound and Hamlet's ghost 

And a study in Macbeth that excelled the most. 

With students attending silent and sober. 

Shakesperian lectures bore much fruit 

And hearty toasts 

For the sterling hosts 

Of Dr. Paulding's institute. 

And now, my students, this kindly note, 

The result of the first debating party, 

The negative won the issue by vote 

Because by far they crowed most hearty. 

Thanksgiving baskets, did I hear? 

I should say! 

'Tis true! What glowing cheer in wrappings gay 
That drop of kindness the class did offer 
Brought great rewards from God's own coffer. 

And now, my dearest TRUDY TACE, 

Please tells us the cause of your beaming face. 

That beam was caused by thoughts so rare 
Of a turkey dinner beyond compare; 
The gracious Sisters' kindly gift, 
Followed by that pleasant rift, 
Thanksgiving vacation with zestful elation. 

PROFESSOR: 

Ah! that was truly a cause to be jolly! 

But oh! the joys that went with holly. 

That little party held in the "rec", 

Which all enjoyed to the tiniest spec. 

And then that glimpse of heaven on earth, 

The Christmas party; the Christ-child's birth, 

And all about it that air of grace 

That falls from the halo near Mary's face. 



Yes? What is it, CYNTHIA SUE? 

That illustration on page 22? 

Explain it please, with your usual ease. 
The background's black, but it's not the print 
But just the freshmen in vacation sprint. 
Here and there, good-bye and farewell, 
A smile and a tear till the next classroom bell. 
The picture is bright and depicts for us well 
The glamour and charm of the Elms' sweet spell. 

PROFESSOR: 

And now, dear girls, please pay attention! 

Do not whisper — or else detention. 

The next of importance this class did feast 

Was Fr. Hubbard the "Glacier Priest". 

His Alaskan scenes were awe inspiring. 

The Glee Club sang with hearts untiring. 

The change from song-books to text-books then, 

As the freshmen mid-year exams begin. 

Spectres haunted all the halls 

And peopled classrooms' empty air 

As unsolved questions danced on walls 

And made wee freshmen tear their hair. 

Close on the heels of this mental toil, 

Measles stalked and took its toll, 

In numbers large, gay plans did foil 

For the Junior prom and a social role; 

Howe'er, some gallants of the humble band 

Dared to mingle with the Juniors grand. 

Continue the lesson, MINERVA MC GEE, 

The next rendition will come from thee. 
Then on the scene came "Pilate's Daughter" 
A noble production, its first at the college. 
Her noble life, God's love had taught her 
Through stormy strife, His grace had sought her. 
Some frosh in the cast, says this book of knowledge 
Were the Misses Donovan, Mangin and Moore 
Who helped to increase the drama's sweet lure. 
Followed the Easter vacation right near * 
With fashions' joy and Holy Week's tear 
That's all Eve prepared for my lesson, dear teacher, 
Someone else who knows more for her help I beseech her. 

BEATRICE BALLOON (rising and promptly continuing): 
Eve found a note in my history that quotes 
"Midst prayerful devotion and hymns' sweetest notes 
On Mary's Day 
In lovely May 
Did our college pay 
Homage to Our Mother on high 
That ever and always our love She might tie 
To Her and Her Son. 
This devotion was done 
For the first time that day 
In '3 5's dearest May." 



PROFESSOR: 

'Tis right well you've done, cute Beatrice Balloon 

And now let us hasten in gay, merry tune, 

Ere May with spring flowers had merged into June. 

With Demosthenes many of the class did commune, 

And Cicero's fire and Webster's finesse 

Those keen young orators didst attempt to possess 

Standing forth in Veritas with forensic display 

Their prowess sent forth on Oratorical Day. 

Kathleen O'Brien for the class gained renown: 

To her in this contest went second-best crown. 

And June with its sunshine brought many a lark, 

A hamburg roast in Forest Park 

A theatre party on a cloudy day, 

When a scheduled picnic fell by the way. 

Next at Sylvia Kilbride's invitation 

Came about a joyous situation. 

Swimming and frankfurts our favor did gain 

One afternoon at Lake Lorraine. 

So very soon came Commencement week 

At its sad delights we'll take but a peek 

For behind had been placed a happy year 

Once freshmen alone, now a class without peer. 



SOPHOMORE YEAR 

We'll begin the next chapter in our book 

Commence the description, Miss MARTHA MC SNOOK. 

Soon the forest leaves were turning 

Soon the Elms girls returning 

Soon the erstwhile freshmen yearning 

For the stately halls of learning. 

Came the Junior, came the Senior, 

Came the Freshie, each so green here, 

Came then too, this class heroic 

For their efforts Sophomoric, 

Came with ardor ever burning 

To this eminent place of learning 

Though the ranks had lost some members 

Though they'd left like faded embers 

Still the class so well remembers 

Those who shared our first year's meeting. 

Starting then with earnest vigor 

Once again came classroom rigor 

Once again came merry friendships 

Yet again upon our friendships 

Issued forth their fervent greeting. 

First occurred the class elections 

After weighty introspections 

Voted then these choice selections 

By these nimble sophomores. 

President's chair fell to Rita Ahearn, 

While Assistant-Elect Mary Ellen did earn. 

To the care of the records Fran O'Brien did turn; 



Guarding the treas'ry, — Dot Zielinski's concern 
With its monetary stores. 



PROFESSOR: 

With the officers elected 
With the leadership effected 
Upon earnest work projected 
This class with which we dwell 
October came upon the campus; 
Melancholy soon did stamp us, 
With its deep quiescent spell — 
With our fall retreat approaching 
Came too, sadness, swift encroaching 
One whose love and moral coaching 
Blessed these stately college grounds. 
Monsignor Doyle with us no longer, 
Retreat impressed us much the stronger 
Solemnly, with fervent feeling 
Father Tivnan's words appealing 
To minds wrapped in sorrow's bounds. 
I shall pause, so please continue, 
Let the others concentrate. 
Carry on, Ophelia Minew, 
Information circulate. 



OPHELIA MINEW: 

Days hurried by like the notes of a song, 
Events thick and fast helped them fleet along, 
Cap and Gown Sunday, Thanksgiving flew by, 
The Christmas Party, with December's sky 
Ready to welcome the cheery vacationists; 
With the New Year, returning as keen applicationists 
For the "Battle of Mid-Year" to attempt to prepare. 
Then three days of freedom with never a care, 
This post-exam interlude was the last they did share 
For the next year was cancelled this privilege so rare. 



CATHERINE CRUNCH: (Breaks in) 

I wish to venture if I may 

This bit of knowledge right away. 

Thence to every girl came "Everyman" 

A dramatization of the Sophomore clan 

Presenting its moral stimulation 

Our Thespian's effort at elevation. 

Another event of February 

Was our Valentine party extraordinary 

For the mellow glow of candlelight 

In the darkened gym, how cheery a sight! 

To our Senior sisters this last farewell, 

Old-fashioned bouquets to heighten the spell, 

With fortunes and hearts and goodies to eat- 

The party was voted a singular feat. 



PROFESSOR: 



Catherine Crunch for that dissertation 
A right good mark with justification. 
The next to recite, Miss Hepzibah Tover, 
Narrate the data which you discover. 

HEPZIBAH: 

Alas I begin with a tragic air 

Such infinite troubles were brought to bear 

As the middle of March swung into line 

Commuters stranded, for home did pine. 

Acres of land under water submerged, 

And rampant rivers with fury urged, 

And havoc wrought that congealed the blood — 

Such is the memory of the flood. 

Collegiennes flocked to the top of the tower 

For a view of the valley in the flood's mighty power. 

A gradual recession of tragedy's woes — 

Thence came the sweetness of Claudia's rose. 

For the titular role, to bear the sacred rose 

The leader of our class, the faculty chose. 

PROFESSOR: 

Like Spring and the flowers 

And Easter and May 

Oratoricals came 

And held sway for a day. 

Another Commencement, another year done. 

Via Veritas Medal for Catholic women was won 

By Mrs. McGoldrick, for achievement outstanding; 

An important announcement of interest commanding, 

Dr. Rooney's appointment as college Vice President. 

As to what he would do, speculation was prevalent. 

So with the many affairs of this busiest week 

To the parting farewell with a tear on the cheek, 

We reverently place in memory's sweet cloud 

The many gay events of the Sophomores proud. 



JUNIOR YEAR 

PROFESSOR: 

Vacation days once more behind 
As, sweetly calling, 

College bells' summons chime down the wind. 
With speed appalling. 

Summer's placid happy days had floated by 
Spent in relaxation. 

Once more to the realm of books their steps did hie 
For new concentration. 

IDA CANDLEWICK: 'Tis time to proceed, 
Try to remember these facts as you read. 
The Jolly Juniors' year begins 



Attacking studies with cheerful grins. 
Renewing friendships, exchanging news, 
Plans for the future, comparing views; 
September is here, and quick dashes past 
Elections are over — 

Three girls re-elected, so class votes were cast. 
The officers four 

Misses Zielinski, Quilty, Ahearn — so we see 

Treasurer, vice-president, president, — three, 

Kathryn Dwyer accepted the role of secretary 

The task of inscribing the records to carry. 

Another election occurred right soon 

When committees and chairmen then were chosen 

For the Junior Promenade when the February moon 

Should gleam from the heavens o'er landscape frozen. 

General chairman of all the fun, was Florence Dunn, 

Betty Maroney, in charge of harmony, 

Mary O'Brien, took tickets in line, 

Katherine Toole, publicity jewel, 

Catherine Syner, patron diviner, 

Louise McCann, refreshments did plan, 

Miss Helen Auth, did programs betroth, 

Miss Scanlon, Mary Alice, — to decorate our prom palace 

With such a committee for collaboration 

Ideas gathered fast for this celebration. 

PROFESSOR: 

Well didst thou thy subject propound, 

Showing a wealth of knowledge profound. 

More on the subject I shall freely expound; 

Listen sagaciously, utter no sound. 

On to November with Cap and Gown Sunday 

When the Juniors displayed their esteem for those 

Who were given insignias "dignitatis profundae". 

Presenting corsages, made each with the rose. 

Then were selected those tourmaline rings 

That with their arrival brought such cries of elation. 

An informal "hop" next this thought brings 

In O'Leary Hall — this was a distinct innovation. 

Chaos reigned in glee for a while 

As the mechanical orchestra decided to strike, 

But the nickelodeon at last arose with a smile 

And joy replaced chaos, who went out on a hike. 

The beds in the dorm were crowded that night 

As the day students stayed by the grace of the sisters; 

And after their escorts departed, — no light 

From each room, — but giggles and whispers. 

Soon looking back on the turn of the year, 

Soon facing mid-years with the usual frown, 

After which hurried in the Prom's brilliant cheer 

With Jan Campbell's rhythm of extensive renown, 

Cute colored darkies told off each new dance 

And were found in each program's sweet silver creation! 

Ah yes! feet tripped that night tinged with magic romance, 

Gay music permeated this Southern Plantation. 



Continue the lesson, Miss ELIZA ELITE, 

And please stop tapping your dainty feet. 

And so we come to the Passion Play 

When Juniors much in the cast did hold sway. 

So to the Mother-Daughter Tea 

Given by the B. V. M. Sodality, 

With variety furnished by military whist 

And potted marigolds with sunbeams kissed. 

Oratoricals again, second prize to the class, 

Fran Mangin to that extent did surpass. 

Now at Commencement Week we gaze — 

That week so full of peerless days. 

A picnic royal at Mount Marie 

For the two upper classes — a merry bee. 

Reverend Mother's treat — 'twas so grand — 

Busloads of students — a singing band. 

Introduced this year was the daisy chain 

To symbolize youth — youth's friendship maintain; 

Carried by a sextet of Juniors selected 

For beauty, a stellar Senior escort effected. 

Thus class day faded, Baccalaureate, too. 

"Completed the voyage of the Junior crew 

And looking outward from our steamer's deck, 

Our bearings we take and our course we check. 

Three years have we spent before the mast; 

The one that comes next must be the last — 

And as sunset fades in the summer skies 

We look forward and wonder what yonder lies." 

Ere September to Summer had bid: "Adios," 

We realized our College year lay very close; 

Borne on the crisp cool wind of the fall, 

School-days again, reunion, and all. 

Some faculty changes — 

Encountered us first as we wandered around 
Re-visiting old haunts o'er the elm-shaded ground. 
Sister Urban had left her quiet understanding, 
And devotion to College, our affection commanding 
So time arranges; 

Sister Antonella succeeds her with efficient instruction 

In History of "Ed" and "Methods" conduction. 

Our first Senior function — 

To the rescue of timid Freshmen we went, 

With a reception in which great efforts were spent, 

To welcome the "Freshies" with gracious finesse, 

For we well did remember our own Freshman distress, 

When we hoped for such unction. 

Your turn for discussion, MISS DAISY DE WITT, 
There is much to discern as o'er these pages we flit. 
Absorbed then with study of French and Psychology, 
With Education and Ethics and perplexing Sociology, 
Such vigor applied, such energy tried, 
That naught was there need for classroom apology. 



Then elections, again, once more to unravel, 

The choice of the ballots for the class' final travel; 

Mary Ellen Quilty and Kathryn Dwyer, 

And Dotty Zielinski did their same posts acquire. 

With Rita Corridan wielding the president's gavel. 

And now the Autumn which brings such glory 

Soon brought a melancholy story; 

Sister Pascal up to those heavenly portals, 

Passed from the midst of we sorrowing mortals, 

Joining our long absent dean, Sister Mary Baptista, 

Reward of the Master in heaven's bright vista. 

DOROTHY DISH: 

To this splendid recitation, 
I would add no consternation, 
Yet, of my mental application 
Would I give a demonstration. 

PROFESSOR: 

Such tremendous enthusiasm, DOROTHY DISH! 
Carry on with the history if you wish. 
A number of items I have on my list, 
A number of items that must not be missed; 
Our solemn Retreat made us feel adolescent, 
Instructions of childhood again reminiscent 
So were the words of such condescension; 
Then, the Sophomore party, so gay and so bright, 
To we Seniors, a festival — a right happy night. 
Next, year-book elections joined in the parade: 
Helen Currier for Editor, Verge Campbell her aide, 
Voted the class convention, 

With Miss Mangin, Miss Quilty, Miss Moore and Miss Brophy 

To make of the year book a treasure, a trophy, 

Kay Dwyer for business, Kay Syner for advertising, 

So started they all, each in her work specializing. 

And then there came 

Thanksgiving and the Dance Elmata, 

And then, like the tones of a sacred cantata, 

Cap and Gown Sunday with its poignant impress, 

A sermon, benediction — Seniors in dress 

As well as in name. 

Refreshed by the worth of the words they did hear, 
Refreshing, the food and gifts of the Juniors dear. 

PROFESSOR: 

And now for the nonce, PETUNIA PLUME, 
Stop making those faces and kindly resume. 
Christmas and holidays and joyous relief, 
Then study and mid-years and mental grief; 
A vote for the ones the Prom to prepare, 
Mary Scanlon selected as "charge d'affaire." 
Verge Campbell for music muse, 
Rita Ahearn to patrons choose, 



Mary O'Brien, the tickets to sell, 
Katherine Toole, the public to tell, 
Kay O'Brien to refresh the jaded dancers, 
Joan Dragon, for favors, so capably answers, 
And last on the list for the June allure, 
Is chief decorationist, Marguerite Moore. 

PROFESSOR: 

And now, my lassies, before we're through, 

We'll have a recitation from BLOSSOM BLUE. 

"Little Women" then on the campus held sway, 

Adroitly presented, this three-act play, 

Then Junior Prom and so Lent began, 

And through it, the Passion Play rehearsals ran. 

Each Senior in the cast reenacted her role, 

But Miss Mangin played "Claudia" due to illness toll. 

Marguerite Moore was promoted to "Afra" this time, 

And her brand new version of "Afra" was fine. 

After Easter vacation, 

May Queen Coronation, 

With Betty Stevens, Kay Dwyer and Florence Dunn, 

Peg Moriarty, Cille Cushion, escorting honors won. 

Rapidly now were the days flying by, 

Like leaves on a wind as they sail through the sky; 

Mothers and daughters so friendly at tea, 

Debating, oratoricals, exams finally. 

Ah! Here at last is Commencement Week! 

Awaited so long, yet that tear on the cheek. 

The final picnic where fun does reign, 

That final march with the daisy chain, 

That last dear class-day with its parting pain. 

PROFESSOR: 

Still have we our Prom to enjoy, 

As dancing gaily each girl and boy, 

Japanese lanterns in the sunset glow, 

To the fetching rhythm sway to and fro. 

The Alumnae return and Baccalaureate will be 

When each of we Seniors will receive her degree. 

Looking backward over the years that are gone, 

To the day when our College life was as young as the dawn, 

Looking backward through text-books and theses and tomes, 

Many scenes recollect as our memory roams, 

Through sessions with Milton, and horrors with Poe, 

Through history's pages and philosophy's woe; 

As Biology, Chemistry, Spanish and French, 

And dogmatic Religion in our minds we entrench, 

Backward we gaze through each fruitful year, 

Finding myriads of scenes that will ever be dear, 

Scenes in assembly, in classroom and gym, 

Recreation and meeting — these never will dim; 

For as time changes minutes and fashions the years, 

And brings with it conquering joys midst the tears, 



-| 59 f 



How often our memory to this campus will stray 

To teachers and friends that may be far away, 

Thanking Him in His goodness, asking Him for the grace, 

That our Alma Mater's teaching, time may never efface. 

Hark! Is that the bell that I hear? 

We must put an end to this lesson I fear. 

So, dear students, before we're through, 

This solemn advice, I give to you, 

Forever remember and imitate 

The invincible Class of '3 8.

PROPHECY 



MIRIAM T. DONOVAN 

At last the long awaited day arrived. It was August 2. 19*0 and we were on our way 
to the World's Fair in New York City. I met Kitty Toole in Springfield where for 
ten years she had been skillfully carrying out her duties as Editor of the Springfield 
City Journal. 

After a hot trip we arrived at the Great Fair. One of the first buildings to attract 
our attention was that entitled "Education in America." On entering this beautiful 
structure we saw two classmates from O. L. E.. Helen Currier and Virginia Campbell. 
Both were busily engaged in giving lectures to a large audience. Helen is now President 
of Boston University and one of the foremost authors of the day. Her latest book. 
"Philosophv at a Glance," is being adopted by many prominent colleges. Virginia is 
Professor of English at the University, and very successful in all her undertakings. 
Upon looking over the pamphlets which Helen was discussing, our attention was drawn 
to one in particular. The heading read. "Miss Rita Ahearn Startles Philosophers by 
Discovery Based on Proof That 'rielle' and 'ideal* Are Xot Contradictory Terms 
after All." Rita has been happily married since the pamphlet was published, and I 
hear she makes a very charming wife "really." 

We were growing very tired and had decided to call it a day and set off to look for a 
hotel room. Suddenlv a gigantic building attracted our attention. A sign outside 
said. "The World of Aviation." We entered and behold, who should greet us. but 
Katie Dwver who had just completed a non-stop flight across the Pacific. She told us 
that while in France last year she met Dot Brophy and Kay O'Brien. Dot is the 
United States Ambassadoress to that country, and according to Katie, is very fond of 
her position. Kathleen is a member of the National French Dramatic Guild, and a 
very popular actress on the Parisian stage. She not only acts but also composes many 
plavs. After our very enjoyable visit, we went to seek lodging in a comfortable hotel. 
On the outskirts of the city we found just what we were looking for. It was called 
the "John Phelan Hotel." The proprietress was none other than Florence Dunn who 
appeared to be very well and happy in her new state of life, We had many enjoyable 
times together during our stay there. We talked with Flossie for about an hour. She 
told us that Mickey McCann is profitably employed in the U. S. Consul Service in 
South America. Marguerite Moore is running a fashionable riding school in Philadel- 
phia, and never misses seeing a rodeo show when there's one in the city. Moorie always 
had a special liking for horses. 

Wit went to our room to rest about five o'clock, We turned on the radio and the tirst 
words that greeted us were: "Good afternoon, everyone: this is Franny Mangin." Fran 
is among the most prominent Catholic poets of the day and a famous radio star. Her 
programs include dramatizations, reading of poems and songs. We had bought tickets 
for the Metropolitan Opera House for that evening, when the operatic stars were to 
present Verdi's famous opera, "Aida." Before getting ready for this event, however, 
we decided to take a walk through the hotel and look around. On the main door we 
spotted a very modernistic beauty salon run by Mary O'Brien. Marv is verv successful 
at this work, and has a steady stream of customers. We had a nice visit and promised 
to return before our stay in New York was over. While walking down the corridor 
on the second floor, a sign on a door at the right attracted our attention. It read "Betty 



-i 6i y 



Stevens, M. D." We went in and found the office filled with patients, and the doctor 
our beloved classmate at O. L. E. 

We reached the opera house at about 8:00. While waiting for the curtain, we looked 
at the program and to our delight saw that the leading role of "Aida" was to be sung 
by Mary Ellen Quilty, who took the part beautifully and furnished a most enjoyable 
evening. 

We slept late the next day and decided not to go to the Fair until late afternoon, as we 
wanted to be present for the ice carnival in the evening. So we took a bus to the New 
York Library. We couldn't go home without seeing that. Who was seated at the large 
desk as head librarian but Lucille Cushion. She showed us around the building and 
drew our attention to a book by Mary Scanlon, "History of the World." Mary is a 
professor of American History at Wellesley College. 

Before returning to the hotel, we decided to go down to New York Harbor for about 
an hour to enjoy the scenery and watch the great vessels entering and leaving port. 
We reached the harbor just in time to see a beautiful new liner ready to dock. 
It was the queen and pride of the Ward Line, called the "S. S. Henry." To our 
surprise we saw Rita Corridan, our Senior Class President, standing on deck and waving 
to us. Rita told us that she is teaching English at the Sorbonne; but returned to this 
country to attend the World's Fair. She came to the hotel with us and after a short 
rest, we took the bus to the Fair. On the way, we told Rita about meeting so many 
girls from the Elms in such a short time. She was very much surprised, and told us 
that Dot Zielinski and Catherine Syner are now very skillful technicians at the Mas- 
sachusetts General Hospital. We arrived safely at the Fair, and decided to go first 
to the Fashion Building where a style show was being held, in which Joan Dragon and 
Helen Auth were two outstanding models. We had a very delightful visit with them 
after the show was over, talking over our college days. 

The ice carnival was to begin at eight o'clock. It was held in a specially ventilated 
building so we had to put on heavy coats for the occasion, even though it was yet 
summer. The spectators were very anxious for the opening. Great amplifiers were 
placed in different sections of the Coliseum. 

At last we heard the announcer's enthusiastic voice, — "Introducing our three stars 
of the evening, the world's most famous skaters, Peg Moriarty, Betty Maroney and 
Sonja Henie. The exhibition was remarkable, and we congratulated Peg and Betty 
after it was over; and we had a nice long talk with them. 

We remained in New York for about a month and enjoyed every minute of our 
vacation, happy to know that everyone in our Class of '38 had fared so well in life. 



PROPHECY ON PROPHET 

During the summer of 1948, I embarked on a European trip. I landed at Havre and 
proceeded to Paris, where I intended to spend several days. On one of my trips through 
the city, I visited a fashionable finishing school for girls, and was delightfully sur- 
prised to find that one of the instructors there was my college friend, Miriam Donovan. 
She told me that she had been teaching in Paris for five years. We chatted about old 
times and mutual friends. As I was leaving, Miriam promised that she would return 
to America when the class of 193 8 held its next reunion at Our Lady of the Elms. 

— Mary O'Brien. 



CLASS WILL 



HELEN AUTH 

We, the Seniors of the College of Our Lady of the Elms, in the Plantation of Chicopee 
and State of Massachusetts, being of sound mind, memory and judgment, do hereby 
declare this to be our last will and testament; and do earnestly hope that our last 
requests be carried out as directed. 

We give and bequeath to our President, his Excellency Bishop O'Leary, to our Vice 
President, Dr. Rooney, to our Dean, Sister M. Ligouri, and to all the other members 
of the faculty, our sincere affection, our deepest reverence, our heartiest gratitude, 
and the whole unlimited wealth of our eternal memory. 

Again, we give and bequeath to our faculty all the amazing knowledge and startling 
information that we have furnished them from time to time in our various examination 
papers. If the faculty see fit, they are authorized to give out such of this information to 
the world of science and learning as they feel the world is ready to receive. 

Dorothy Zielinski leaves to all future class treasurers her ability to make perfect record- 
ings of the financial standing of class members, and her successful methods of col- 
lecting dues. 

Marguerite Moore wills her dramatic ability to Marguerita Danahey with the proviso 
that she continue the organization of the Dramatic Society. 

To give a proof of our unselfishness to the world, we leave Frances Mangin's poetry. 

Joan Dragon chooses that Mary Larkin should be left her ability to spend much time 
looking for a study hall only to find she can't keep it private. 

Betty Maroney leaves her athletic prowess to Eleanor O'Herron. 

Betty Stevens deems it time to turn over her Philosophy books to Annette LaLiberte. 

Louise McCann and Florence Dunn bequeath Room # 3 to Margaret Riley and Mary 
Noonan. Our only request is that the new occupants of this room will be as gracious 
hostesses as Louise and Florence have been. 

Katherine Toole leaves a placard bearing the name Dolores Donlin to said person, so 
that there will be no mistaken identity in the future. 

To "M. E." Courtney, "M. E." Quilty leaves a dozen monogrammed gags of which 
not the least important is, "He who puns shall be 'pun'ished." 

Mary O'Brien leaves her quiet unassuming manner to Margaret Riley. 

Rita Corridan's ability to do all things well we leave to Edna Lunney. 

Helen Currier leaves her schoolgirl complexion to the Palmolive Company. 

To the present and future classes of O. L. E. we leave the gift of gab, gaiety and 
laughter of Margaret Moriarty. We desire this should be divided among the Juniors, 
Sophomores and Freshmen, and a portion be left in trust for all future classes. 



-[63 ]- 



We bequeath Virginia Campbell's ability to pursue and conquer homework, especially 
French, to all students who need such a trait. 

Catherine Syner bequeaths a bundle of vitality and pep to the advertising manager of 
the '39 Elmata. 

Katherine Dwyer leaves her naturalness and unaffected manner to all who can attain it. 

To Ruth Moran, Rita Ahearn wills a chauffeur, always waiting at the door when classes 
are finished, with explicit instructions to pick up all her classmates from school to 
the limit. 

Mary Scanlon leaves her tardiness to Helen Finnegan; at times she may find it profitable. 

Lucille Cushion leaves a 10 cent bottle of waving lotion and a perforated curler to 
Ruth Dineen, so that she may fix the tresses of her classmates, especially at time for 
class pictures. 

Kathleen O'Brien leaves her oratorical ability to Lorraine Horan. May she profit by 
it especially in Oral Expression Contests. 

Miriam Donovan disposes of her Brief Case by willing it to any Freshie who would like 
to start on her college career with a good case, backed by a good reputation. 

Dorothy Brophy leaves her hobby for collecting miniature dogs to Rosemary Cum- 
mings. May she receive as much enjoyment from it as Dorothy has. 

In order to show our good will towards the Freshman Class, we leave them a copy of 
an "Old Farmer's Almanac" which will help them to steer clear of many an approach- 
ing storm, by enabling them to read in their professors' countenances the nature and 
condition of movements throughout the day. 

To the Sophomores, we leave our school spirit — may they continue to exhibit the same 
sort of enthusiasm and interest which has been manifested by the class of '38 at the 
Elms. Not only is application to school work necessary, but support of all school 
affairs and a whole-hearted cooperation of the entire class will be necessary if the class 
of '40 hopes to follow in the footsteps of its sister class. 

We give and bequeath unto the Juniors the great and noble honor of becoming Seniors, 
in order that they may have a year book in which 99% of their classmates will be 
displeased, and we add our hopes that they will be as disappointed as we were, when we 
found out that our pictures looked just like us. 

Last comes the one thing difficult but necessary to relinquish. To the Juniors we leave 
our course in Senior Philosophy. If the class of '39 gains half the profit and inspiration 
which we have received, this will be their most precious possession, as it has been ours. 

We do hereby constitute and appoint the Dean, sole executrix of this, our last will 
and testament. 

In witness whereof, we have hereunto set our hand and seal at our residence in College 
of Our Lady of the Elms, in the Plantation of Chicopee, Massachusetts, this day 
of June, in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and thirty-eight.

United they stand, and in unity there is strength! Expressions and words are woefully 
inadeo,uate to tell all that the Junior Class have done for their Alma Mater. In after 
years one of our most pregnant recollections will be the memory of this said class. 
With the same vivacity and energy with which they have encountered their scholastic 
studies, they have devoted themselves tirelessly to all other projects which they have 
undertaken. Their loyalty, steadfastness, and their readiness to help at all times reflects 
the real class spirit with which they are imbued, and rates them as A No. 1 friends 
and classmates. 

Their ability in dramatic fields is well recognized. This is shown by the important 
roles which have been assigned to many of their members in the cast of "Pilate's 
Daughter." In debating too, they have proven that they can more than hold their own; 
and in all other extra-curricula activities they have deserved the praise which has been 
bestowed upon them. 

One of the outstanding events of our Senior Year was the delightful Cap and Gown 
Sunday program extended to us by the members of this class. It was characterized by 
originality, and will not soon be forgotten. 

Small wonder is it then that with the Junior Class continuing in the future as it has 
in the past we, the Class of '3 8, feel no qualms in predicting that they will well become 
the Seniorial garb and dignity which we will bestow upon them.

In bidding farewell to the Sophomores, we pause awhile to say that we are very proud 
of our sister class, and extend an earnest wish that it will progress in the field of 
Scholastic achievement with the same rapidity that has been manifested thus far. 

In the various clubs of the College, which aim to give a wider view of progress along 
different lines, and also to add finesse to the cultural background that is obtained in 
the classroom, the Sophomores have been well represented by students, capable of 
taking their stand beside the upper classmen. We have ever found them ready to assist 
in any undertaking, which would add a note of glory or secure a word of praise for 
their Alma Mater. 

To the class of 1940, we lovingly give the following advice: "Continue your advance- 
ment onward and upward, and when the close of this decade shall find you wearing 
the sable robe of the Senior Class, may it find you still sweet, gentle, progressive and 
helpful as in the days when you were Sophomores, and we, your sisters, admired and 
loved these virtues in you."

Behold, the Freshmen! To them falls the fate of being the cynosure of all eyes — 
from the critical one of the Senior, to the sympathetic one of the Sophomore. Now, 
after a year of probation it is our duty to declaim their virtues and to predict a likely 
future for them. The day of registration we were greeted by a lively, likeable group 
of expectant faces. They seemed a bit too assured but we knew a few weeks would 
cure that! However, we hoped that spirit and action viewed so clearly would be retained, 
and it was. At every dance, at the proms, at theatrical productions, we could always 
count on the loyal support of the Freshmen. It is one of their striking characteristics 
and we hope nothing will dim its ardor. But, this might mislead the reader into thinking 
this class is merely interested in social affairs. They lent their spirit industriously to 
class work, also. How many times we wondered how long their sacrificing spirit could 
withstand giving up free afternoons for the study hall. We were agreeably surprised 
to see that this was no flickering spurt of energy. In debates and assemblies their 
representatives have attained a high standard, creating a good impression on both faculty 
and student body. 

There is time for sports in every enjoyable schedule. It is not lacking here. Although 
the Freshmen have not been successful in gaining the trophy in intramurals, their 
spirit of enthusiasm has made them graceful in defeat. 

Four years is a long time to live up to a reputation of loyalty, industry and enthusiasm, 
which has been set at such a high standard. But, persevere, Freshmen, and keep your 
ideal before you. We have confidence that you can do it. You know that you will.

■>! 80 J- 



THE BLESSED VIRGIN'S SODALITY 



Guarding the entrance to the College of Our Lady of the 
Elms, with arms protectively extended, stands a large statue 
of the Virgin Mary who is the patroness and ideal of every 
Elms girl. Honor to her finds expression in the activities 
of the Sodality which is particularly devoted to God's most 
holy Mother. 

As Freshmen, we looked with longing eyes on the "Upper 
Classmen" who were privileged to wear Mary's own Medal 
and when, in the course of time that distinction was con- 
ferred on us and we became real Sodalists our enthusiasm 
knew no bounds. 

The Spiritual Meetings held on each First Friday of the 
month intensified our reverence for the Queen of Heaven 
and enriched our spiritual lives while our daily lives grew 
more verdant in the literary and mission activities con- 
nected with the Sodality. 

Ever a source of pleasure and delight have been the Major 
Meetings and the social hour which precedes them. They 
will always live in our memory. 

We wish to extend our heartfelt thanks to our Reverend 
Director and Directress under whose aid and guidance the 
Society has flourished and through whose influence we 
have come to recognize the true worth of "our tainted 
nature's solitary boast." 

As we pass for the last time through the portals of the 
Elms, ever in our hearts will be enshrined a prayer that 
Mary will continue to inspire us throughout life and that 
when the shades of death draw nigh her benediction may 
descend upon us.

Overhead myriads of multi-colored Japanese lanterns swayed in perfect rhythm to 
the lilting strains of sweet American music, that floated from a pagoda in which the 
orchestra was situated. The soft glow of an oriental sunset shed its unique beauty on 
the happy dancing couples that kept step with the even measures of Ken Reeves' band. 
Everywhere Japanese splendor manifested itself in an American background in an event 
that proved as enjoyable as it was exceedingly attractive. The memories of our Senior 
Prom will bring us very much happiness through the years and we shall never think of 
it without a feeling of gratitude for our Chairmen who were responsible for it success.

Among the pleasant memories that the class of thirty-eight will cherish through the 
years, is that of a certain night in February when we, as Juniors, danced to the rhythm 
of Jan Campbell's orchestra. Our gymnasium, on that occasion, cast off its stern 
aspect and was transformed to a beautiful Southland scene, just as if some fairy god- 
mother had touched it with her wand. The fairy godmothers, however, were none 
other than the members of the Junior Class and an efficient interior decorator, and 
unfortunately, there was no such wand to be had. Hard work and interested coopera- 
tion wrought magic, and the transformation of the 'gym' into a beautiful cottonfield 
was sufficient gratification for the labor involved. 

The Junior Prom, so thoroughly enjoyed by all, is another proof of the ability of the 
class of thirty-eight to do all things well.

SCIENCE CLUB 



President ------ Dorothy Zielinski 

Vice President ------ Helen Keegan 

Secretary ------ Marie Callahan 

Treasurer ------ Eleanor Donahoe 



Keeping pace with the rapidly progressing science of our day has been the chief aim of 
the Monsignor Doyle Science Circle. The leading questions that confront our modern 
scientists, as well as the observations and conclusions that have been arrived at, produce 
interesting and comprehensive subject material for the various discussions, so thoroughly 
treated by the members of the club. 

An element that adds to the attraction of the Science Circle and gives a clear 
and concise idea of the various subjects treated, is the use of moving pictures. In this 
way the students enjoy the illustrated representations of the various processes which 
enable us to produce artificially those necessities that otherwise are the work of nature. 
With the professor explaining each step in the process, the student acquires a clear idea 
of what is going on in the field of science about him. 

The class of 193 8 leaves a hearty wish for continued success in this field, where minds 
are enlightened with the true facts of our progressive world, and scholars come to the 
realization that "true science and revelation cannot be at variance." 




LA CORTE CASTELLANA 

President ------- Louise McCann 

Vice President ------ Ann Carroll 

Secretary ------- Carmen Padilla 

Treasurer - -- -- -- - Joan Dragon 

Holding rigorously to its scheduled bimonthly meetings, La Corte Castellana main- 
tained an interesting program of activities. The aim of La Corte Castellana is to awak- 
en in its members an active appreciation of all that was and all that is Spanish. Follow- 
ing this plan, La Corte held a lively discussion of current events and the position 
of Spain in its present crisis. When Christmas appeared, we were glad to know just 
how the Spanish celebrate their Christmas. Under the direction of the president, 
individual countries were capably represented by different members. It was a beautiful 
and inspiring presentation. 

Leaving social affairs in the background for a serious study of the works of Lope de 
Vega, Gracian and Calderon, we proceeded to haunt the glorious history of Spanish 
literature. With Spring came thoughts of poetry. Who can better interpret the beauty 
of this season than our poets? A current events meeting seemed to complete the 
program of activities for this year. Thus, the old was tied with the new in club 
assemblies. Now, La Corte Castellana is nearing the end of a successful year, hoping 
that the Spanish student has gained much practice in Spanish conversation and an 
insight into the beauty of its language.

PHILOSOPHY CLUBS

Dorothy Brophy - Vice President, '37 

Rita Corridan ------ Secretary, '37 

Mary Scanlon - Vice President, '3 8 

Katherine Toole ----- Secretary, '38 



The social nature of our Philosophy Clubs has added pleasure and enjoyment to the 
acquisition of practical knowledge and many of our happiest hours were spent when 
these clubs were in session. In our Junior Year our interests were in the Metaphysical 
Club, and in our Senior Year our attention was naturally turned toward Social Action, 
since we too, were to become partakers of its labor. The presence of guest speakers 
on various occasions proved to be invaluable as a source of information and guidance, 
and these representatives of the different branches of Social work very clearly and 
definitely pointed out the problems and experiences which confront the modern graduate. 
The speakers proved efficient in answering the questions directed to them by the 
members of the Club. The very informality of the meeting gave every girl an oppor- 
tunity of satisfying her curiosity regarding the subject treated. 

We leave an earnest wish that the Philosophy Clubs continue in the same manner, that 
others may prosper by the 'helps' that have been ours. 



MUSICAL CLUBS 



President ------- Florence Dunn 

Vice President ------ Ann Carroll 

Secretary ----- - Helen Finnegan 

Treasurer ------ Margaret Meehan 



Not least among our extra-curricula activities on campus is the Glee Club, which 
under the capable direction of our Reverend Directress has been acclaimed as an 
organization of unheralded merit. Connected with this Club as a necessary and essen- 
tial unit is the Orchestra, whose harmonious strains have blended and heightened 
the effect of the various voices in the ensemble. 

Annual features of the Club are the Christmas Concert, when, to the clear, sweet 
notes of "Silent Night," the Yuletide season is ushered in and the Spring Concert, 
at which time Nature and all her attributes are lauded in song. 

The Glee Club contributes its talent to many of the plays produced during the year 
and has also furnished enjoyment to outside audiences, as will be remembered by the 
applause which greeted their efforts at the Springfield Auditorium a few years back 
and even more forcibly attested to last year by a gathering composed of Catholic 
Alumnae of various colleges. 

The crowning highlight of the Club has been the Double Quartet, which has ably 
demonstrated that it can transport us from this mortal soil into heavenly realms 
by the accord of sweet harmony. Surely, music hath charms!

DEBATING 

SOCIETY

Marguerita Danahey 
Secretary, Lorraine Horan 
Treasurer, Flora Millette 



That woman can be as fiery as she is gentle has been well proven by the members of 
our debating society. The inter-class debates, which have been so intensely interesting 
to the students in the College, have not been received with less enthusiasm and admira- 
tion when staged before a strange audience. 

The debaters have shown themselves capable of weighing the good and bad points of 
the predominant questions of the day, and of defending their stand by forceful and 
clear argumentation. Friendly rivalry has been the outstanding characteristic of this 
society, and one team has never known a victory that the opposing team has not 
shared by its good sportsmanship. 

We congratulate the coach of our debating society for her untiring efforts along 
this line, and we feel sure, that, under her guidance, many young women will take 
their places among the logical thinkers and clear speakers of the world, and maintain 
that same self-confidence that has characterized our debating society thus far.

Since it is the purpose of every good teaching organization to aim toward the develop- 
ment of a "sound mind in a sound body," our College, by means of its Athletic 
Association, has provided for the recreation and muscular development of its students, 
with the same care and guidance that has characterized its achievements pertaining 
to mental development. 

Our gymnasium, which is open to the entire student body is adequately furnished with 
modern athletic equipment; and the inter-class tournaments have been a most effective 
incentive toward the progress of bodily development. 

The Athletic Association is outstanding for its skill, good sportsmanship, alertness, 
and that highly commendable quality of being able to think for one's self when facing 
trying situations. 

The Class of 193 8, in parting, shall take with it many pleasant memories of happy 
hours spent in the enjoyment of the Association's activities, and leave an earnest wish 
that this splendid work will advance steadily onward.

First in importance in the activities of Le Cercle Francais was the beginning of a 
French journal, "Chuchotements des Ormes," with Kathleen O'Brien '3 8 appointed 
as editor-in-chief. Another industrious step toward making French a practical study 
for students was the establishment of French tables in the dining hall. To attempt 
to invigorate the conversation of these ambitious students, medals of the fleur de lys 
were offered as a merit of excellence. The club meetings varied in entertainment from 
a card social to the popular vox pop. The limelight of the year was stolen by the 
inter-class debate, "Resolved: That the radio is worth more than the press." It was a 
glad day for the Seniors and Sophomores. Following their course of studies, two one-act 
plays by the modern writers, Zamacois and Duvernois were presented. The cast admirably 
portrayed the roles, expressing themselves with perfect diction. Congratulations on the 
completion of a great year — and may the following year see even greater endeavor 
and enthusiasm!

DRAMATIC 
CLUB 



President, Marguerite Moore 
Vice President, 

Marguerita Danahey 
Secretary, Dorothy Clifford 
Treasurer, Frances Mangin 



The lights are dim, the stage is set and as the misty curtain of past events is raised before our eyes we 
behold the present Senior Class as they were four years ago when they arrived at O. L. E., and in the 
immortal words of Shakespeare ready "to hold, as 'twere, the mirror up to Nature." 

Their expectation was fulfilled when they were admitted to the ranks of the Dramatic Society, which 
society has ever been one of the most popular organizations on campus. A chance to demonstrate their 
histrionic ability was given them in the initial production of the college play "Pilate's Daughter" when 
several roles were assigned to the members of our class. 

Sophomore year witnessed a steady climbing of the Thespian heights when "Everyman" that unforgettable 
medieval drama was staged and met with satisfying approval. 

As Juniors, under the auspices of the Dramatic Society our class chose "The White Phantom" as its 
production and once again showed that it had the power to move an audience as was witnessed by the 
terrifying shrieks that rent the air at the appearance of the ghostly apparition. 

Honorable mention should be paid to "Little Women" put on by a cast composed of the Senior 
members of the club. This well-staged drama can be truly counted as a feather in the cap of the 
Class of '38. 

At this time, though mere words can not half convey our real feelings, we wish to render our appreciation 
and gratitude to our Sister Directress who each and every year has worked tirelessly to make our 

dramatics a success. 

Looking back through the years we find that the members of this society have worked without stint 
to be really real in the characters which they interpret and our only wish is, that, as they go through 
life each may play his part as best he can and as the Author of Life has planned.

"While the Colosseum stands, Rome shall stand; 
When the Colosseum falls, Rome shall fall; 
And when Rome falls, the world ..." 

For thousands of years, the Latin writers have been the subject of deep study by scholars 
all over the world, because they represent what is best in literature. The Classical Club 
at our College has made a very successful debut this year, and has developed initiative 
among its members by urging them to broaden their views in Classic literature, and not 
to confine them within the narrow limits of the classroom. 

The results of this activity have been very satisfactory and those interested have de- 
veloped the power of appreciating and of profiting by the centuries of learning that 
make Rome one of the great educational centers of the world.

EDITOR-IN-CHIEF 
MAKES NEW 
HEADLINE 



Our editor - in - chief 
startled the world at the 
Elms with her new head- 
line ... or do I mean hair- 
cut. . . . On a dark and 
stormy night 'ME' under 
protest did the dire deed 
and clipped the mane so 
long the envy of all. Came 
the morning after and Helen 
removed the long despised 
curlers and wailed, "Is this 
the face that launched a 
thousand ships?" 



SPORT SHORTS 



The flashy Senior Team 
chicly attired in navy blue 
suits (borrowed) nosed out 
the powerful Alumni Sex- 
tet, 8-2, in a thrilling, chill- 
ing game of basketball. 

This is the second vic- 
tory gained by the Seniors 
in their four year campaign. 
It does not however destroy 
their hope that they will 
string up the longest num- 
ber of successive defeats 
for a like campaign. 



We've heard of receiving 
roses, yes, and violets and 
even camillias, but we be- 
gin to wonder when Midge 
Moore receives ORANGE 
BLOSSOMS???????? 



RETURN OF 
GREAT EXPLORER 

Mickey Buck Returns 

Mickey Buck the famous 
explorer has just returned 
from his latest expedition 
to the wilds of Sunderland 
Smiling broadly under his 
well known sun helmet he 
declares: 'the native peaches 
are perfection.' 



Believe It Or Not 



Miss Margaret Moriarty 
revealed a hitherto unsus- 
pected side of her personal- 
ity. The question concern- 
ed the fatiguing effect of 
the emotions. Miss Moriar- 
ty stated that Love is not 
FATIGUING!!! Could that 
have something to do with 
the Special Deliveries from 
Ozzie? 



Miss Miriam Donovan at- 
tended six classes today . . . 
and didn't giggle once!!!!! 



Miss Joan Dragon has re- 
turned to our midst after a 
siege of distemper. No, 
nothing to be alarmed at. 
Joan wasn't the invalid. . . . 
But we all know that 
Chico's health comes before 
an education. 



UNPRECEDENTED ACT 

ACCLAIMED BY ELMS GIRLS! 



Sunday morning, Feb. 1}. Elms girls were startled into 
expressions of great delight as the result of an act entirely 
without precedent of the oldest inhabitants. No . . the 
bananas and cornflakes were not missing at the breakfast 
table . . but they were neglected for . . . delight of de- 
lights . . . yes . . . we had bacon for breakfast. 



FIRE IN JUNIOR DORMITORY 



Miss Josephine Albano of the 'Junior Guard' pursued 
the 'Sardonic Seniors' who raised a false alarm of fire. 
Miss Albano was nattily attired in pajamas, bare feet and 
curlers. Unfortunately the perpetrators of said crime es- 
:aped. 



M1DNITE ADVENTURE 



Misses Moore and Brophy decided to put an end to the 
'alarm clock menace' which was spoiling those last precious 
moments of sleep. They took steps one night, spirited 
away the offending alarms and so successfully hid them 
that one fell from the third story window. On being 
recovered the next day, the only part that worked was . . . 
yes . . . THE ALARM!!!!!! 



(Dbttuanj 



Marguerite Moore was dressed and packed fifteen minutes 
before Taxi Time, the Saturday of our last weekend. The 
shock was too great for Flossie, who passed quietly from 
this earthly sphere. She is mourned by all who knew her. 

Miss Virginia Campbell departed from this life early 
yesterday afternoon. The cause ... no French assignment 
was given for the next class!!!!!! 

Miss Betty Maroney, assistant stage manager for the pro- 
duction 'EVERY MAN,' after a full weekend's work on a 
rose bedecked trellis discovered that they just didn't go in 
for that sort of thing in the Medieval theatre. She never 
recovered. Friends have sent "roses."

PROM PROBLEMS 

Solved by Gracie Gabalot of the International 
Fixup Bureau 



Dear Miss Gabalot: 

Could you tell me what happens to our Editor-in-chief 
every time a Prom rolls around? I always hunt for her to 
claim our dance but narry a sign of her. . . . 

— Puzzled. 

Dear Puzzled: 

Have you tried the Library balcony?? 

Dear Gracie: 

What does Dr. Shea mean when he speaks of 'sociable 
notes' in our Philosophy class? 

Bob Wire. 

Dear Bob Wire: 

Prom bids of course. 

* 

Dear Miss Gabalot: 

Recently I found myself in a strange predicament; mine 
was not the usual problem of lack of escort, on the con- 
trary, I accidently invited two gentlemen to the same 
affair. What would you do in such a position????? 

- — Quaking in my Quandrum. 

Dear Quaking in My Quandrum: 

Miss Mary Scanlon from her own experience has been 
kind enough to answer that one. Miss Scanlon recommends 
finding a third young man on the spot. (In fact, she had 
one on campus in twenty minutes). 

* 

Dear Miss Gabalot: 

Don't you think that under the clothes-line, on Prom 
night is a queer place to mend a slipper? 

— Wondering. 

Dear Wondering: 

Miss Moore assures us that it is done in the best and 
most elite circles. 

* 

POSSIBLE BUT NOT PROMABLE! ! ! ! ! ! 



PROM PROBLEMS— (Continued) 



Dear Miss Gracie: 

Should one be discouraged at receiving a special deliv- 
ery the day of a prom stating that he's terribly sorry, 
but ? 

— Anxious. 

Dear Anxious: 

Discouraged? Never say die! The Class of '39 has given 
us proof of this maxim. When mere freshmen, three cases 
of measles, a broken leg, a pulled tooth, and suspension for 
infraction of rules among their escorts didn't stop them. 
All six cases occurred the day before and the day of the 
Prom. However all six girls made a smiling debut with six 
new men. 



IN THE WORLD OF SCIENCE 



Dr. Sheehan: Where did fire originate? 
Mickey (sotto voice) : A boy scout. 

a 

Dr. Shea: What is man? 

Any Elms Girl: Any Prom prospect. 

Q 

C. Syner (discovered in her Biology notes): The seed of 
a plant is developed in the overalls. 
Could you mean ovary, Catherine? 

n 

Trig. Prof.: Rita, your figure is lopsided 

Why, Sister! 



Dr. Shea: What do you call those people who chase bugs 
and butterflies? 

Helen C: Men about town. 

a 

Mary O'B.: Listen to the Protococcus. 



RUMORED 'ROUND 

Miss Katherine Toole has of late exhibited a marked 
interest in the city of Boston. We've heard that the inter- 
est is merely "friend"ly. 

o o o 

We've been wondering about that mysterious sender of 
violets to Mary Alice — just a week after the Prom — and 
on Valentine's Day. 



Dr. Shea: (in an exam) What's holding you up, girls? 
H. G: The chairs.

MUSIC REVIEW 

New Instruments Added 
to Ensemble 

The immortal string en- 
semble was presented with 
several new instruments 
through the combined ef- 
forts of Misses Carroll and 
Everett. They discovered 
them while rummaging in 
the family attic. It is be- 
lieved that they are rem- 
nants of Toscanini's old 
band. 

Included in the collec- 
tion are: 

1. 1 flute without stops. 
1 clarinet minus a 
reed. 

trombone minus a 
mouth piece, 
pair drum sticks 
sans drum. 
These will all be christen- 
ed at the farewell rendition 
of the 'Moonlight Madon- 
na' so faithfully executed 
by the Ensemble at each 
appearance.

FASHION & BEAUTY 



Hair Styles 



Miss Helen Currier caused 
quite a furore at a retreat 
conference by appearing 
with her waist length hair 
flowing in the breeze. This 
style though unusual is not 
expected to be universally 
followed. 



The latest thing in table 
crumbers is an awning-like 
affair suspiciously ressembl- 
ing the pajamas with which 
Mary Scanlon feasted our 
eyes, those happy evenings 
of Sophomore year. Can it 
be??? 



One of the outstanding 
campus figures recommends 
galoshes as the fashionable 
footwear from September to 
May. 



The newest fad in Easter 
bonnets is recommended by 
Ligerrelli, Elmtree Lane, on 
the Chicopee. ... A dashing 
red flower-pot crowned by 
cacti or ivy trim. 



Male fashions displayed 
by the Class of '3 8 in their 
production "Little Women" 
are being eagerly copied by 
Harvard men. . . . 



Miss Scanlon has delight- 
ed the onlookers by the ad- 
dition of two tricky pock- 
ets to her uniform. 



AT THE THEATER 

A recent meeting of the 
Dizzy Drama Club was in- 
terrupted during a presen- 
tation of "Molly Moo Cow" 
by a resounding thud sus- 
piciously ressembling that 
of a shoe striking the ad- 
joining wall. Could it be 
that the faculty does not 
appreciate true art????? 



ELMS SENIORS 
SCORE SMASH- 
ING HIT 

"Little Women" as pre- 
sented by the class of 193 8 
was declared by critics to

Elms!!

HUMOR 



Dearest Mom, 

It seems perfect ages since I've heard from you. What is the matter? I hope you 
answer this letter right away because I simply love to get mail from home. You came 
near not hearing from me as I had an awful time borrowing a stamp. 

I had my green silk cleaned last week but haven't gone after it yet. It's terrible 
the wav cleaner's prices have gone up. Be sure to write soon, won't you? I was going 
to have my hair set this week but I guess I'll have one of the girls fix it instead. 

They keep telling me my collars are ready at the laundry but I'm letting them 
stay there awhile. 

All the girls went to the movies this afternoon to see Robert Taylor. I read a 
book. I'll have to bring it back tonight. It's due today and they charge a nickel a day 
for overtime. Don't forget to answer this letter as soon as you can. 

Tell Dad I send my love. I didn't have a bit of trouble cashing the last check 
he sent. 

I guess I've told you all the news except that I've lost my English Lit and can't 
study till I get another book. Don't neglect answering me as I want to hear how 

y° u a11 are - Your loving daughter, 

P.S. How is it that brother Henry never writes to me these davs? Has he lost 
his job?

With Apologies To Longfellow 



Listen my children, and you shall hear 

A tale that will bring to your eyes a tear 

'Twas in the fateful Fall — yes back in 'thirty-six 

That first we got into this fix 

Which reached its sad climax this very year. 

We said to ourselves, "The time now has come 

To put an end to uncertain rule 

What we need, what we want, is a written guide 

A most liberal one for a modern school." 

To the Head Powers we put our plea 

And asked them to furnish a remedy. 

A moment's pause. The reply came clear 

"Bide yet a while", we all did hear, 

"We'll grant all of your wishes within the year". 

We waited "awhile". The days slid on 
And ere we noticed the year was gone. 
Summer too went as on wings of song 
And autumn days had come along; 
Happy we came trooping back to school 
Only to find there the same old rule 
And as we waited with patient sigh 
Autumn and half the winter went by. 

At last! At last! Came that joyous hour! 

Ring out ye bells in yon high tower!! 

Day of liberation you've come at last!! 

Day of confinement you are past!! 

But hold yet awhile — we've mischief there 

Can this be our plan of freedom fair? 

A pretty book 'tis true but something's wrong 

Can this be the liberty awaited so long — ? 

The book that would hold our freedom's song? 

Where is the weekly night out? my dear, 
Where does the later weekend appear? 
Where the clause that the Elms girls will be 
Without any fuss permitted to see 
Male callers so bold as to venture here? 
Oh "day hops" 'tis your turn to shed a tear 
You must stay on campus, hours that are free 
You can not loiter 'neath the old Elm tree 
Worse! You can't go home till half past three! 

Alack! Alas! that we should see this day — 

"A quarter for each tray you'll pay — " 

"For concert or lecture — " we moan 

"The rule demands a chaperon". 

"A letter from home the 'sine qua non' 

For a weekend "at home", then only one". 

If this be the answer to our plea, 

If this be your plan of remedy 

Give us the "good old days" that used to be.

QUALITY RETURNS 

The persistence of quality has been the keynote of our business. The evil practice 
of judging plumbing and heating products on a price basis only has proved a costly 
experience to those who have bought plumbing and heating that way. 

We are proud to say that we have always recommended and sold the better grades 
of quality products with the confidence that our recommendation would not be 
undermined by the bogey or price competition and inferior goods. 

When you are next in need of plumbing or heating — whether new work or modern- 
ization — let us figure with you. Someone once said, "Quality remains long after 
price is forgotten."
